Distant – Spring ’19, Pt. 1

This spring season has a two-parter in store for you. Two hours of the latest in liquid DnB as usual, just spread over two sessions this time. My highlights when selecting were the Technimatic album on Shogun, the Polaris EP on Medschool, Edlan’s Liquicity release, the Galacy compilation and a remainder of last year’s Microfunk Music compilation. Part 2 coming your way very soon.

Although this new year looks promising with a new Hospital compilation and a Calibre LP around the corner, I’ll use the start-of-year gap in releases to go on hiatus with Distant – this Yearmix being the final set for now. The time I am able to commit to producing sets is getting shorter every year, so I’ll focus on a regular output for Planetarium and Helioscope instead.
